Terrell County- Morning temperatures below 30 degrees may have some reaching for the winter coat, but it's welcome news to local growers.

Fruit tree growers and Pecan growers both say cold temperatures now make for better crops come fall. Warmer temperatures now could cause trees to bud too early and face trouble if a cold snap happens next month.

"As a pecan grower, I'm glad to see the cold weather. It's good for the trees, it keeps the sap down and we hope it will stay cold through late March and then warm up and stay warm," said Keith Cromartie, Cromartie Pecan Farm.

A good crop in 2005 could make this year's return bloom not as large.
